temp variable too long

I am trying to install a program and receive the message "your temp variable is too long." How to I change the path of the temp variable so that Windows recognizes the new path?

Thank you

right click my computer, select properties
go to the advanced tab
click on "environment variables"
from here, you can edit the TEMP and TMP variables.
it's probably set to %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temp, you can change this to C:\Temp or C:\WINNT\Temp

this should solve your problem.
